Scale of the Day: F Ionian diminished 5 mapped to the Square-root-of-2
The intervallic content of the F Ionian diminished 5 mapped to the Square-root-of-2 Scale. Just the slight alteration of the diminished fifth leaves ripples of intervals that fall out of the regular diatonic patterns. That is, if one can detect such patterns after squeezing the intervals of this scale into the half-size confines of the equal tempered "tritone."
